He'd probably end up with the strangest career line of all time:

0.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0BB, 1K

this is true. I love his arm angle. I hope he gets some chances. It's good to bring someone out of the bullpen in with a different arm angle because it throws hitters off. That was how Scott Sullivan was successful for so many years.

I really liked the way he threw too, and supposedly he gets a lot of ground balls. However, I liked the way Ondrusek threw in his first appearance too, so I will temper my expectations.

Why did Dusty remove him? Didn't make sense to me. :confused:

have to play the match ups, plus the guy was anything but stellar, effectively wild would be more accurate

He'll get his shots...there are enough mediocre arms in the pen to prove that...

I don't know how you can take 5 pitches and make that kind of decisive conclusion, but from the highlights I saw that's not really the description I'd use. He missed his spot on one pitch in the AB where Hanigan lined up inside and he threw it off the outside corner. Plus his minor league stats suggest anything but the "effectively wild" misnomer: He walked only 12 in 80.1 IP last year and just 4 in 24.2 IP this year.

His stuff was what was most impressive, with hard downward movement on his sinker and a change that was deceptive enough that it fooled even Hanigan. McCutchen looked off balance and overmatched in the at bat, and he's no slouch.

I thought the batters were guessing too on Rosario. He had a couple of pitches up in the zone. He was probably jacked up for his first stint.
